Wills & Estates
We assist our clients and their families to create and implement plans for the transfer of their estates on death.
Because a will is only part of an overall estate plan we consider and advise on a variety of complementary legal structures and provide practical advice suitable for each person.
We are often retained by trustees, executors and administrators to obtain the Probate of a Will and to advise with respect to the administration of estates and trusts.
We also assist our clients in planning for potential mental and legal incapacity by preparing a suitable power of attorney.
Our practice in this area covers the following services:
Drafting of wills and estate settlements
Preparation of powers of attorney and mandates
Estate litigation; proceedings to set aside wills, replace trustees; amend trust agreements, terminate trusts, passing of accounts and declaratory judgments
